I have really enjoyed reading all the posts and learning new and easy recipes from the wonderful group of people that make up the "Landers". I recently visited a German cafe in Helen GA called Hofer's. They had the absolute best tomato-basil bisque I had ever tasted - even the kids loved it. It appeared that the tomatoes may have been pureed. It was very rich and I know they used heavy cream in it. Would anyone have something similar? Thanks!!
Welcome to Nancy's Message Boards. As you have already noticed, these boards have so much, you can spend a good few hours finding lots and lots of recipes to try.
You were on the right board, but did you do a search? I did and came up with two recipes which sounded similar to the one you were looking for. If you go to the top of the board and click the search, then type in the space provided, it will then bring up recipes if there are any. There is one by Chris NM that sounds the closest to your Tomato-basil bisque.
The best way to find a recipe is to write into Nancy's newsletter which is sent out 6 days per week, i.e. everyday excluding Fridays:
Thanks to you both! There is a lot to look at and it's a lot of fun!! I appreciate the information! I've actually gotten the newsletter for quite a while and love it but had never registered to use the boards! Hopefully I'll be able to provide some valuable input! Thanks again!!!
I'm not too sure why some members of the newsletter don't use the message boards. I personally spend a lot of my spare time, searching through the boards and trying someone else's "tried and tested" recipe. Invariably, there is someone else's comments on the recipes. I am continually coming up with new dishes, instead of doing repeats.
Carolyn in Tulsa recommended a great site in today's newsletter. I had a look and found a Tomato Bisque recipe, it's worth a look. I couldn't copy and paste the recipe, but you can copy or perhaps print it, using the floppy disc or print icons on the top left of the recipe:

Hey Sylvia! I found a way to copy and paste a pdf file just now. I was just fooling around, but it works! Go to the page you want to copy and paste, right click and a listing comes up, select the one that says Select All, then go to your keyboard and use a control c, go to a blank page of Word, and do a control v. Voila! You have copied only the page/recipe you want! I never tried this before and was bummed because I maybe found 1 or 2 I wanted, not the whole thing. Give it a try!
Has anyone ever told you two you're pretty awesome!!! I live in SC and you know us true southerners are always looking for stuff to cook - especially for Sunday Dinners! I'm headed to e-cookbooks now! Plan on doing the membership too! Have a great weekend! And thanks so much again!
